Hello! I am planning a trip to Europe this year and trying to plan an itinerary. We want to travel from Florence to Switzerland and would love to stay in the Bern Oberland Region, specifically I was looking at Lauterbrunnen. It appears the route to get there would be a 6+ hour train with 3 connections (Florence > Milan > Spiez > Lauterbrunnen). Now I am exploring the possibility of breaking up the trip and possibly staying the night or two somewhere in between Florence and Lauterbrunnen. Does anyone have a recommended itinerary to go from Florence to Switzerland? We've never traveled to Switzerland and are definitely looking for that Swiss-Mountain feel over a huge city.
Any suggestions of cities to see along the way are much appreciated!
